Fixed it @MrBouzouki . Here's a how-to: I'd suggest to use the 'gallery' option: https://www.songwriter-forum-kitchen.com/forum/forum-newsupdates/17/file-sharing-and-sharing-uploaded-images-on-the-forum/1947/


Ok since we're on a new page here's a recap of what's offered so far:

I'll start.......I took this picture in northern Vermont, USA quite a few years ago  :)


(Click to enlarge..)

thanks @Leonard Scaper
i get ideas about where that track (train) is going after that..... far away... turn to the right....

my inspirational input is.... any aspect of the plane landing on the Hudson river thing, but in the form of a fun and silly, what happened afterwards, much later, video i just saw...


but i think a song could just magnify any of the 208 seconds of that, or before or after etc.

Wow inspiring input already @Dutchbeat and @Leonard Scaper ! Thank you for sharing!

Here's my input, I posted this pic I took before, a while ago somewhere. The context doesn't matter. I got a lot of storylines in my head when I saw this scene. I'm really curious how your storyline would sound in an original song!

Cheers!

Here is mine. It's a photo from Sheffield City Centre around 16 years ago.

It was the demolishing of the old Town Hall extension (affectionately known as the 'eggbox') and it was a horrible bit of architecture.
The juxtaposition of the old 'Town Hall' on the left and the demolishing of the newer extension on the right might spark a bit of thinking for somebody.

Hye guys, sorry to be only getting back to you now. I have been house-sitting an old castle and the internet comes and goes as it pleases for some reason. I think the castle is haunted. too many strange things happen.

Castelvecchio di Testona (but situated in Moncalieri) is 1500 years old, it belonged to the franks, then the romans, then Monks and now my girlfriends family, as well as 8 other families. It's googable if you wish to know more =) because it is the picture I am selecting for this competition =)

Count me in!

My inspirational input is an extract from 'Too Many Names (Demasiado Nombres) by Chilean poet Pablo Neruda:

Hey guys,

Count me in!  I've been lurking here for too long, having a new song to write and share might encourage me to participate more.  ;)

Here's a shot from the archives, I hope it creates some inspiration...it was taken in Montmartre in Paris outside a great bar/restaurant called Les Relais de la Butte, which happens to be opposite the atelier (flat) where Picasso lived for a while.  Musicians would come along and perform, and I thought the shot of the crowd was a "Parisian classic"...

And the people around him all seem to think.....without looking too obviously to him: "Hey, isn't that Keith Richards????

 ::) ::) ??? ???

Glad you like @Dutchbeat:D  He does look quite like a young Keith Richards...maybe it's his son?  ;D
